Description

I first saw this neat, beautiful, rich and saturated dahlia in a trial 5 years ago but it had not yet been released. Well, it has now and it’s a beauty with ebony stems and dark leaves and a good vase life.

Care Tips

Support with a stout stick, tie in every couple of weeks. In the south you can mulch deeply and overwinter them in the ground, alternatively, lift and overwinter your dahlias frost free undercover.
